Ricotta Eggs

CREAMY SCRAMBLED EGGS

If you want to take your scrambled eggs to the next level, try adding ricotta cheese to them!

INGREDIENTS

  • EGGS – Large eggs are used here. I really love pasture raised eggs.
  • RICOTTA – Whole milk ricotta is what you need to use here for creaminess.
  • PECORINO CHEESE – This is sprinkled on top for a salty flavorful touch.
  • CRUSHED RED PEPPER – Adds a little kick. 
  • GREEN ONIONS OR CHIVES – this is for flavor and color.
